I'm at the Trophy Brewery and Taproom. They have two restaurants nearby, which I've not been to.
Industrial vibe, plenty of seating indoors and out.
Fast service despite being fairly busy on a Saturday night.
A dozen beers on tap, from a pilsner to a NEIPA, to Horchata Stout.
Chips and nuts for snacks.

A very lively place with a great atmosphere, a good selection of quality beers and a great selection of pizzas. A very good place to relax and have some beers.

The wife and I dropped in on a Sunday at noon for pizza and a few beers. Parking was great since there is a lot behind the place with lost of parking. I wanted to try all of the beers I had not had they only did one flight the first 4 beers. The good news was that none of the beers on the list were over 7% so I still did a half pour of the rest I wanted to try. The waitress even brought me a healthy "sample" of the stout. I was not expecting to be blown away by the beers, we really went for the pizza but all of the beers were solid. The strawberry basil Berliner was really good, waitress was very knowledgeable and helpful as well as quick. The pizza was amazing, we had 2 personal pizzas and took one home along with some cans. The beer selection has something for everyone along with wine. They have salads to go along with teh pizza, nice roomy area not crowded at all. Lots of outside space I imagine the inside fills up quickly. I will go back here every chance I can.

We visited close to midnight on a Tuesday night. Pizza's were great. Beers were decent, as was the service. Not a bad place for a pizza and a beer.

Stopped in here because I had a couple beers at EBF that I've enjoyed in the past. The vibe is kind vintage like 70's era. I almost felt like "the Dude" from the Big Lebowski would be hanging out there for whatever reason. The beers were decent but nothing special. The service was good. The pizza was really good though. I took that down my face hole pretty quick. I'm glad I got to check the place out but wouldn't rush back for the beers on their own.

Trophy Brewing and Pizza, Limited selection of beers but awesome pizza. Trophy Brewing away from the hustle of downtown.

Stopped by for the second time at the Pizza location. Pizza is very good, ingredients tasted fresh. Seems a little pricey but maybe that's just standard for Raleigh. Nice selection of their own beers on tap and in cans. Server was friendly and efficient.
My only complaint was when I tried to order a flight. Being as Trophy beers are a little hard to come by, I wanted to sample several. The server told me that only the first four beers on the tap list could be ordered that way. I mean, WTF!? I have NEVER heard of that practice in a craft beer establishment. Plus, those weren't the ones I wanted to try.
Oh well. I had the Teacher's Pet IPA which was quite tasty, so overall, a good experience.
But, c'mon folks. Do the flights right so we can enjoy even more of your beers.

A funky little place with an extensive collection of random trophies lining the walls; it has a kind of psudo dive bar vibe that works. The beers themselves seemed a bit hit of miss to me and the selection was not huge by today's standards. Service was good, sitting at the bar while they weren't busy, didn't get a chance to try the food. I wouldn't be in any particular hurry to go back, though I could see some people really loving this place.

This is a review for the downtown spot, previously Busy Bee. The space hasn't changed much - which is good news, it's such a cool space. I had a great late night meal - the chicken is awesome - and a flight. Their flights are 8 glasses btw. I definitely recommend checking them out if you're in the area. Good food & great beer. Cheers!

Their salads are even better than their pizza. And the beer is arguably the consistently best in the area.
